WE HAVE NO DEDICATED WHALE WATCHING TRIPS DURING THE SUMMER MONTHS, WINTER MACKEREL SEASON ONLY
Shetland has to be one of the best places in the world for spotting whales, and while there is always the chance of seeing whales on any of our excursions our dedicated WINTER whale spotting trips will take you to wherever they are spotted up and down the west side of Shetland. We would love to call it whale watching but there is never any guarantee you will see them, but later in the autumn/winter when the pelagic boats are working out in the haaf hundreds of orca gather to feed on the escapees from the nets. (see videos below) Escaping the frying pan only to be snapped up by an eager orca.
These trips are not for the faint hearted sea conditions are likely to be poor to rough, so it will be cold and wet and once we are out we won’t turn around to drop you off.
